GM Notes

Two Corporations have the same special ability. There was a "can't those who sent orders in have first choice even if it's duplicate" query and I decided yes.

Please head your orders with your Name, Corporation Name and Corporation letter. It saves me a lot of time.

You can rename your ships. Some have names I gave them.

Orders for the first turn to Mike Dommett, 119 Victoria Road,
